White Mountains

A Fragile Geography

A choreography for Alive Dance Company, Part of a bigger project, A Fragile Geography, this fictional story is set in a remote ancient village situated deep inside a valley and overlooked by a towering White Mountain.  The insular villagers who live there know nothing of the outside world and see the Mountain as a God, providing everything they need to live. The community is centred on traditional conservative values and strong rules that dictate how they should live their lives.  What is it like to live in a world with few freedoms but not realise you are restricted?  Can you have an inner yearning to explore if you don't know anywhere else exists?  How can you express yourself in a society that acts as one?
